Smartbottoms 101

After several years diapering with mostly pockets, then flats and covers, I indulged myself in the world of all-in-ones (AIOs). I avoided them originally, for reasons I can’t recall. As I’ve seen and used most all in the major brands in the cloth diapering world, I’m so glad to have taken the leap and tried a Smart Bottoms Smart One 3.1 (AIO) two years ago.A family-owned company based in Michigan, everything Smart Bottoms is made in the United States.

Motherhood Changes You. And that's OK.

Before I had my daughter, I had envisioned the type of mother that I thought I would be: laid back, easy-going, and cool as a cucumber. After years of spending time with friends and family members who were knee deep into raising children, we often had plans thwarted for any number of baby-related reasons.
